Ascent Trip Report

Climbed while going to and from Clingman's Dome. Started and finished at the Fork Ridge Trail parking area and followed the Appalachian Trail to Clingman's and back. Rainy (see Clingman's Dome report). Summit of Collins appears to be near the trail but not exactly on it; I visited all obvious candidates.
